All You Need To Know


Please note that with immediate effect, anyone travelling to South Africa must have two consecutive blank VISA pages in their passport which lie side by side when the passport is open (i.e. a left and a right hand page).

Passengers travelling to South Africa with passports which do not comply with these requirements, will either be stopped from boarding the aircraft or risk deportation on arrival in South Africa. In addition, a parent travelling with children, without the other parent, will need a letter of consent from the absent parent. The letter of consent must be certified by the police.

Furthermore, please note that passengers entering many African countries (including but not limited to South Africa , Botswana and Zambia) must have passports valid for at least 6 months after the travel entry date. Failure to adhere to this regulation may result in immediate deportation to the country of origin at own cost to the client.

Travellers under the age of 18

The South African government is implementing a new law which will come into effect on 1 June 2015. The legislation states that all minors (under the age of 18 years old) are required to produce - in addition to their passports - an unabridged birth certificate. A child who is only travelling with one parents will also be required to present an affidavit from his or her other parent consenting to the travel. If the minor is travelling with neither of his or her parents, he or she is required to produce:

- an affidavit/s from both parents consenting to the journey

- a copy of their IDs or passports; and

- the parents' contract details.

Please note that this law was originally scheduled to come into force on 1 October 2014 but the Department of Home Affairs granted a postponement after engaging with various stakeholders. Rhino Africa is monitoring the developments and will provide clients with clear, up-to-date information.
